Pachauri: What? Me worry?

Per The Hindustan Times in this article Pachauri rules out stepping down even if UN panel finds fault…

Stating that the IPCC will make efforts to ensure that its fifth assessment report carries no errors, its chairman R K Pachauri has ruled out stepping down even if the UN-constituted review committee finds faults in the procedures followed by the climate panel.

Sounds like a case of “I have a fat head” and “I am perfect” rolled into one asshole.

To a poser on whether it was a system failure, he maintained it was more of a “procedural failure” and said, “We will do everything humanly possible to ensure that the error in the fourth report is not there in the fifth report.”

“Absolutely”, was his reply to a question on whether one single failure was being ‘taken out of proportion’.

“Absolutely. One error does not dilute the findings of the IPCC that the glaciers are melting,” he said.

One single failure? One error? That’s all? What’s this guy smoking?  Here’s a site with 54 errors form the 4th IPCC Report!  One error?  Also, let us not forget his ties to TATA, who got £2 Billion for closing the last steel making plant in the UK.

This guy needs to go, he has no credibility, except in his own delusional mind.

Volcanos Hot – CO2 Not

mtetna01Per an article by John O’Sullivan on Suite 101 a new study proves volcanos are hot and CO2 is not!

Global warming and acid oceans have been blamed on greenhouse gases from human fossil fuels. Now growing evidence proves Mother Nature is the most likely cause.

Mother nature?  Not AGW?

A study by Australian geology researcher, Timothy Casey disproves the recent claims by alarmist environmentalists that man-made emissions of carbon dioxide have been causing ocean acidification.

Oops!  What? No acidification?

These disturbing claim has been perplexing geologists, among other researchers, that have failed to detect any increase in acidification in the word’s rivers, lakes, reservoirs and aquariums.

So CO2 is so selective it gets into the world’s oceans, but ignores lakes, streams, rivers, reservoirs, aquariums, not to mention my hot tub? Yeah right!

This study supports what we’re talking about now.

Researchers have looked again at the numbers obtained by oceanographers (i.e. Hillier & Watts (2007)) that surveyed 201,055 submarine volcanoes. From this they concluded an astounding total of 3,477,403 submarine volcanoes must reasonably exist worldwide. They based this finding on the earlier and well-respected observations of Batiza (1982) who found that at least 4 per cent of seamounts are active volcanoes.

As per the usual the IPCC conveniently ignores all these volcanos and cherry picks data to fit their AGW theory…

None of the more than 2,000 active submarine volcanoes have even been discussed in Kerrick (2001), a paper referred to by the IPCC and used to eliminate volcanoes as an important factor in Co2 output into the atmosphere.

Furthermore, Kerrick (2001) justifies the omission of mid oceanic ridge emissions by claiming that mid oceanic ridges discharge less Co2 than is consumed by mid oceanic ridge hydrothermal carbonate systems. There is no evidence to support such a conclusion.

There seems to be increasing volcanic activity, too.

Casey’s study looked at examples such as the Blue Lake in the crater of dormant volcano, Mount Gambier now acidifying due to volcanogenic CO2 input. It lies in the regional centre of the Limestone Coast in the South East of South Australia. It has now been found Mount Gambier is not quite so dormant as some alarmist studies suggested. If this fact was repeated world-wide then it would dispel concerns that human emitted greenhouse gases were the cause of rising levels of sea acidity. The real culprit seems to have been Nature all along.

(I will add that similar is occurring in the Mammoth Mountain area in California  There are areas where gases are seeping out of the ground and killing trees and other vegetation.  More evidence of CO2 venting into the atmosphere).

The conclusion is therefore becoming very clear that atmospheric carbon dioxide can not be the cause of oceanic acidification as we once thought.Thus we may fairly infer it is a non-problem.

In addition to this I have always wondered why they measure CO2 on Mauna Loa because it’s an active volcano.  I wonder how much this inflates the amount of CO2 they claim is in the atmosphere?

Yet another faux pas by the IPCC and their buddies.  The lies just keep on coming.

Finally! Something NOT Blamed on Global Warming.

According to this article from Catholic Online Italy may be facing a big kaboom that may cause a big tsunami.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) – According to Enzo Boschi, president of the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, the Marsili is bursting with magma and has fragile walls that are in danger of collapse at any moment.

“Our latest research shows that the volcano is not structurally solid, its walls are fragile, the magma chamber is of sizeable dimensions,” Boschi says. “All that tells us that the volcano is active and could begin erupting at any time.”

An eruption would result in “a strong tsunami that could strike the coasts of Campania, Calabria and Sicily,” Boschi says. “A rupture of the walls would let loose millions of cubic meters of material capable of generating a very powerful wave.”

2010030313marsili Volcano ItalyThis is one big volcano, too!  But it’s been awhile since it blew its top.

However – it must be pointed out that the Marsili, 9,800 feet tall and located some 90 miles southwest of Naples, has not erupted since the start of recorded history.

Unlike the AGW crowd they don’t try to predict things.

“While the indications that have been collected are precise, it is impossible to make predictions. The risk is real but hard to evaluate,” Boschi adds.

I guess the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology doesn’t have a crystal ball with futurevision inside like the IPCC does.  The best thing about this is they DIDN’T blame it on Anthropogenic Global Warming!

Pachauri Sings "I've Got Big Balls"

pachauri1Is this who AC/DC wrote that song about?  The Great Dr. Pachauri?  The guy in charge of the IPCC? Whose report said the glaciers in the Himalayas would melt by 2035?  He must really has some big balls!  While he’s under investigation he’s singing…

I’ve got big balls
I’ve got big balls
They’re such big balls
And they’re dirty big balls
And he’s got big balls
And she’s got big balls
(But we’ve got the biggest balls of them all)

Based on this article in Times Online.

The outspoken chairman of the UN’s climate change body is to adopt a neutral advisory role and has agreed to stop making statements demanding new taxes and other radical policies on cutting emissions.

He also apologised for describing as “voodoo science” an Indian Government report which challenged the IPCC’s claims about the rapid melting of Himalayan glaciers.

My how magnanimous of him.  Sure he apologizes, now that he’s backed into a corner and the Co2 gravy train is about to end.

Here’s part of why I say he has big balls.

But Dr Pachauri, 70, rejected calls for his resignation and insisted he would remain as chairman until after publication of the IPCC’s next report in 2014.

He gets caught red-handed yet still refuses to resign.  What a guy.

“It is not correct to say there are people who don’t trust me,” he said.

So there are people who do trust him? I’ll bet that’s a short list if there ever was one!

Now here’s some really big balls!

Dr Pachauri said he wanted more power over the IPCC secretariat and an extra $1million (£671,000) a year to fund its work, on top of the $5million it already receives. The IPCC is planning to recruit more spin-doctors to help it promote its work and defend itself against attacks by climate sceptics. Dr Pachauri said that at present the organisation is “terribly ill-equipped” to communicate with the world’s media.

OK, so it’s I screwed up, I got caught red-handed, I tried to cover things up, but give me more money.  Can you believe it?   DIRTY BIG BALLS if there ever were any! Sounds like Wall Street…’ummmmm…. sorry I bankrupted the company but do I still get my $20 million bonus this year?’

Then, after all this he even has the audacity to claim he’s not making any money from all of this!

He rejected claims that he had personally profited from the many contracts he has to advise companies on climate change. All the money went to the charitable research institute which he heads, he said. He gave The Times a copy of his 2008-09 income tax return which showed earnings of £44,600.

A KPMG report into his financial relationship with The Energy and Resources Institute concluded: “No evidence was found that indicated personal fiduciary benefits accruing to Dr Pachauri from his various advisory roles that would have led to a conflict of interest.”

I wonder if one should beleive KPMG?  Based on these articles I would wonder.

KPMG to Pay $456 Million for Criminal Violations

KPMG Allowed Fraud at New Century, Report Says

Here’s a nice article in Telegraph.co.uk regarding his financial conflicts of interest and here’s the open letter (PDF) from Lord Monckton to Pachauri about his screw-ups.  You can read them and form your own opinion about this guy.  I think he needs to go.

Now the IPCC is Going to Study Us

UN BuildingYes, you have read it correctly. It couldn’t be their fault nobody believes them! It must be the fault of the masses! Now they want to put us under the microscope so that they can find out what lies we’ll believe in the next report. This article in Telegraph.co.uk reports the following…

The head of the United Nations (UN) has announced a review of how the world examines the risk of global warming following a series of scandals around the science of climate change.

I can save them lots of time and money on the next one.  How they come to their conclusions?  Lets try bogus data, cherry-picked data, peer review only by those who agree with them, etc….

an independent review will be carried out by the InterAcademy of Council, an organisation that represents national science academies around the world. The review will look at how the IPCC, that is run by volunteer scientists and relies on input from thousands of people around the world, comes to its conclusions.

They’re going to make sure they don’t screw up next time…

“It is critically important that the science we bring into our reports and disseminate on a large scale is accepted across the globe, by governments, businesses and civil society,” he said.

“We expect that this review will help us strengthen the entire process by which we carry out preparation of our reports.”

This is just the kind of  CO2 Insanity I speak of.  Why can’t they just admit they screwed up BIG TIME, kick all the liars out, and start over?  Too simple I suppose?

IPCC Busted…..again

AmazonScience Daily reports in this article that the IPCC screwed up again. This time it seems the Amazon Jungle isn’t going to dry up and blow away afterall…

ScienceDaily (Mar. 12, 2010) — A new NASA-funded study has concluded that Amazon rain forests were remarkably unaffected in the face of once-in-a-century drought in 2005, neither dying nor thriving, contrary to a previously published report and claims by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The IPCC gave this their “sky is falling” treatment, based (surprise) on bogus data…

The IPCC is under scrutiny for various data inaccuracies, including its claim — based on a flawed World Wildlife Fund study — that up to 40% of the Amazonian forests could react drastically and be replaced by savannas from even a slight reduction in rainfall.

“Our results certainly do not indicate such extreme sensitivity to reductions in rainfall,” said Sangram Ganguly, an author on the new study, from the Bay Area Environmental Research Institute affiliated with NASA Ames Research Center in California.

I have to ask does the IPCC ever get anything right?
